The Mountains were calling...

Tomorrow starts me back to routine as vacation comes to a close. So sad.  How will I ever be able to put in a full 5 days of work?  I mean really?!  So to share a bit with you a vacation for me takes me back to the mountains.
It will always find me heading up a gorgeous road to some mountain top. This time and most times it is Glacier Park in Montana.
The colors were beginning to turn making for a great colorful background.  However, the day we went it was cooler and rainy.  But that didn't make a whole lot of difference to me.  Such peacefulness resides in the mountains....always.
And with art supplies in hand I managed some time to sketch and on the flight home created this little gal.
Home is a good place also but could do without the heat and humidity hanging around.  And as always, my heart resides in the mountains!

A Little something new

Today I whipped up a small batch of bookmarks
These are fun and easy to make plus will make great little add ins with gifts.  Or maybe even make them into gift tags.  After all (dare I say), you know what will be here before we know it!
Then I played around with a different color scheme.  Of course I can't get away from pink but was fun to play around in black and white.

So another weekend is coming to a close.  Hope you enjoyed yours and got creative!

Labor Day Weekend

Is the weekend signaling Fall?  Just wanting to make sure.  I know schools in, football is back, and Halloween decorations are now everywhere.  This all equates to Fall with the exception of the 100 degree weather.  Not cool!  Literally!  Plus my white pants are put away until next Spring, a fashion rule right?

What is going on then you ask?

Napping, but not for me.  These two have got this down.  And the other two are out of frame doing the same.  Given the heat they have told  me they want to be inside dogs. :)
 Besides canvas work, which I have been doing more of lately, I took a wood panel and started playing around. Not quite sure what to call her and probably not finished with her either.
And finally I've been working on shop updates, a constant work in progress, and excited that Posters are now available.  I'll be listing more Posters soon. 
So if you are kicking back and relaxing this long weekend drop by my shops and say hi!
